I hear seven, who'll go eight on their Arkie roots?

Posted By on Thu, Oct 6, 2011 at 10:55 AM

Gotta love candidate Arkie root nurturing. A political observer notes from various news releases:

2nd District Republican:

The youngest son of a minister and teacher, Tim Griffin is a fifth generation Arkansan, veteran, attorney and former small business owner who lives in Little Rock with his wife Elizabeth and their two children.

Fourth District Republicans:

A sixth-generation Arkansan, Tom Cotton was born and raised in Dardanelle on his family's cattle farm. Tom graduated from Dardanelle High School and went on to graduate with honors from Harvard College and Harvard Law School.

Beth Anne Rankin is a seventh generation south Arkansan, who owns a small business. She served in the Governor's Office for Governor Mike Huckabee for seven years. Rankin is also the vice president of Rankin Land and Timber, her family operated business. Beth Anne is a member of the NFIB and a Life Member of the NRA. She is running for the congressional seat being vacated by US Representative Mike Ross.

I vote for the candidate whose ancestors introduced barbecue to DeSoto.

    When President-elect Trump announced he would, in a few days, force Congress to enact comprehensive health insurance for everyone, poor or rich, that would provide better and cheaper care than they've ever gotten, you had to wonder whether this guy is a miracle worker or a fool.
